Sam Maloof style rocking chair class

10-12-2015 04:27 PM by bkap | 4 comments »

All you woodworkers,come out to Utah and build a Maloof style rocker with me. In one week you go home with the knowledge to make these rockers as well as taking home your own rocker. It will still need a lot of finish work, but all the joints and shapes will be there. I furnish the wood, text, patterns, jig and personal instructions. Any woodworker can do it, just one step at a time.

Its been a while since I last got to work on these. The opening for the backrest wasn’t perfectly square, so I made quite a lot of compound angle test cuts. I forgot to reset the saw, which I realized when I did some other stuff later with the same cabin saw (at this communal workshop type of a place).

The Craftsman's Path #11: Sam Maloof on design

10-13-2007 05:02 PM by Mark Mazzo | 0 comments »

I’d be interested in hearing the perspectives on this subject from all of you LumberJocks out there. Thanks for reading!
